SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.

Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you could find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used.

Your hosting server will be set up immediately after you purchase it and the instant you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you can connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
